Pastor Tom Hicks interacts with the proof texts that are used by those who believe that baptism causes salvation:
A number of groups teach that baptism is necessary for salvation. Roman Catholics, the Churches of Christ, Anglicans, and proponents of the Federal Vision, all say that the water-rite of baptism is necessary and effectual for salvation. Consider the six main passages these groups use to support their position.
[Mark 16:16 | Acts 2:38 | Acts 22:16 | Romans 6:3-7 | Galatians 3:27 | 1 Peter 3:21]
